Blogtoberfest Day 19: Shop Update and Oppy Delights

I've popped some new brooches into The CurlyPops Shop.... I'm loving the pink and green combo - perfect for Spring!

My mum headed to Clunes last week to visit my sister. While I was out at a crafternoon, she came over and left me some op shop treats from her travels.

A copy of Handmade from 1984 - you should see some of the fashion horrors (there's a feature on 1980's knitwear designers) eeeeek!

But she certainly did well scoring this huge jar of miscellaneous buttons for $6. I haven't sorted through them properly yet but I'm sure there are some gems hiding in there somewhere.

Nice to know that you are loved! Have posted an tongue in cheek entry for SuperPops - not a real and true one, just a giggle. Lisa.

What a find of buttons. It even looks like you have some decent sized ones in there. I only seem to find little ones. Cherrie

What a great score. My sister gave me some of her old Handmade mags as well on the weekend (from the early nineties). I remember pouring over them reading every page when we were younger. What a trip down memory lane! I hope you enjoy yours.
